'House for L' Pushes the Boundaries of Its Lot to Accommodate a Family

Space in urban centers around the world is at a premium, and 'House for L' is a physical manifestation of that modern development. The home, which is located in Warsaw, Poland, sits on a relatively small plot, but it has to accommodate a large family. In order to fulfill that requirement, MFRMGR, the architecture studio behind the design, pushed the home to the edges of the space, ensuring maximal interior area for the occupants.

Thanks to its maximized layout, the home has a monolithic appearance from the exterior. In order to lessen some of that intimidating impact, the architects opted to use soft materials on the facade. The brick on the exterior, for instance, is a calming, pale whitewash, and the windows are recessed with oak sills to make them as welcoming as possible given the shape of the home as a whole.
